Getting workwear right can be tricky at the best of times, let alone when the temperatures are so icy that all you want to wear is your pyjamas. As the weather gets bleaker, we often find our workwear wardrobes become a little more drab, with dark colours and practical (rather than fun) layering. But there are a number of ways you can look smart when you're in hibernation mode.
We have some tricks for softening corporate tailoring and adding personality to your winter basics, including expensive-looking knitwear and experimenting with bold colours. There are certain businesswomen that always provide inspiring workwear ideas, including Head of Fashion Partnerships at Instagram Eva Chen and Moda Operandi Founder Lauren Santo Domingo. Keep scrolling to see how they do it.
1. Camel Always Looks Chic
Style Notes: Make like Tamu McPherson and double up on camel. Everything looks chic in a rich caramel hue.
Style Notes: Winter outfits can often feel a little clumsy with endless layers, but one way to instantly streamline your look at the same time as making a style statement is to stick to one colour palette head to toe.
Style Notes: When it's freezing it can be tempting to reach for your warmest coat and not think about how it goes with your outfit. The best answer here is to opt for a sweeping long coat that goes with anything. A checked tailored coat always looks expensive.
